In the tradition of other cop shows like "Miami Vice" and "Car 54, Where Are You?", this series is no exception. The viewer follows the exploits of T.J. Hooker and Vince Romano as police officers, as they track criminals and enforce the law. Written by

When ABC canceled the series in 1985, CBS acquired it as an addition to its late-night schedule, broadcasting first-run episodes for the show's 1985-86 season. Production of the series officially stopped in the spring of 1986, but reruns continued to air on CBS's late-night slot until September of 1987. See more »
If you look closely at the front grill of Hooker and Romano's car, there's always a square or circular part cut out, revealing the placement of a camera in the car for action shots. See more »
T.J. Hooker is a real cool cop show.William Shatner,a.k.a. Capt. James T. Kirk of Star Trek shows he can really act.Shatner was not given enough credit for his acting by people and critics on this TV series.The other great cast who is also great is Adrian Zmed(Bachelor Party),Heather Locklear(Melrose Place and Spin City),James Darren,who to us Star Trek fans is well known for his roll as holographic character Vic Fontaine on "Star Trek:Deep Space Nine",as Richard Herd is awesome,to us science fiction fans is well know in the mini series "V" and the 1984 sequel "V The Final Battle" as John,to us Star Trek fans,he played Lt. Tom Paris's father,Adm. Owen Paris on "Star Trek Voyager".T.J. Hooker is the type of cop that everyone needs in every cop precinct,he fight s for the victims.I like this show so much,it deserves more credit.This show still rocks.
